Those Crazy Pesky (Yet Wonderful) Cats

Ask anyone that knows me, in fact you could even ask anyone who doesn't know me, everybody knows I'm a the crazy cat lady. I've lived with cats my whole life and though I am a huge fan of all animals, it's cat that hold a special place in my heart. It's strange perhaps, but I feel a sort of connection to them, all of them.

How to Cut Your Toddler's Hair

Young children often find haircuts unbearable. For some, it's the fear of a stranger being close to their head with a pair of scissors, for others it's the itch caused by dropped hair. Or it may be that they find the experience of a salon frightening, with the pressure of unfamiliar people, peculiar smells, and odd garments. So, why not get your toddler used to the sensation of a haircut from the person they trust most? 
Here's how to cut your child's hair at home.

Items around our Home | #3

I haven't done one of these posts in a while now and I'm not quite sure why, as we've added quite a few new bits and bobs to our home lately. But here I am, back with post number 3 of 'items around our home'. And today I am sharing our three newest items.

Dream Kitchen Mood Board

We moved into our new house in March of this year and I've never looked back. I love the area we live in and I love what we've managed to do with the place so far. However, our kitchen, which was done new by the previous owners really just isn't to our taste. We've managed to add odd accessories to it and it's sort of made it bearable, but the long term plan would definitely be to re-do it ourselves.

Review: GTLC Cavendish Play Kitchen


GTLC Cavendish Play Kitchen
(Currently on a sale offer of £76 down from £95).

I've wanted to get Ethan a play kitchen for so long now. In fact it was going to be his main present this year for Christmas. But when the Great Little Trading Company got in touch with me and asked if we'd like to review them, I couldn't resist. I adore their wooden Cavendish play kitchen - it''s made from such fantastic quality and it has been so much fun to play with with Ethan.

Some of Ethans Christmas Gifts + Ideas

Has anyone else NOT started their Christmas shopping yet? Because it sort of feels like it's just me. I feel like I'm struggling to keep up with how fast Christmas is approaching. Saying that I have been browsing good old Amazon whenever I get a chance for Christmas ideas for Ethan as I want to get him things that he's really going to be able to love and use, I don't want him ending up with lots of new toys that hardly get touched. So I guess that I'm trying to be organised in that sense and I suppose that's better than having done no other sort of other preparation for Christmas, right?

Here are some of the items that have been floating about in my 'saved for later' basket.. Any suggestions for any other brilliant toy ideas will be greatly appreciated! Because as I'm sure you can tell.. I'm SO not done!
